Bollywood Khans caught gambling on Diwali

LosersMumbai. Bollywood actors Saif Ali Khan and Shahrukh Khan lost everything, including their clothes, in a gambling party they attended on the eve of Diwali. Both of them were spotted almost naked in ink-blue towels while returning from the party. The duo had smeared their faces with wheat flour to escape recognition, but Faking News cameraperson Flash Gordon recognized them and clicked these photographs. This development, being termed as Gamblegate, is expected to cause major controversy in India.

The party was reportedly organized by another Bollywood actor Salman Khan, who is very well known for celebrating both Muslim and Hindu festivals with equal gaiety. Although Indian media has been reporting about a possible rift between Salman and Shahrukh, those reports were proved wrong when Shahrukh gaily accepted the invitation and came to the party with his g-pal (gambling partner) Saif.

Salman also invited Amir Khan, who has otherwise been keeping busy getting a haircut each alternate day, to join the gang and be his g-pal. Amir too obliged Salman and like most of the Indians, they started gambling on Diwali – the festival of lights and celebrations.

Initially Salman Khan lost his shirt, which he happily threw away, but in later rounds Salman and Amir won everything that was betted by Saif-Shahrukh duo. Reports say that Saif-Shahrukh even betted the clothes they were wearing as a last-ditch attempt to beat Salman-Amir, but ended up losing even their undergarments. Salman Khan later on gave them a big towel to cover themselves up and go back home.

To escape humiliation in public, Saif and Shahrukh had put wheat flour on their faces so that people can’t recognize them. This camouflaging trick almost worked until Shahrukh blurted out ‘k-k-k-k-kameraman’ when he saw Faking News cameraman Flash Gordon. Flash Gordon's camera got turned on after hearing this sound and he clicked their pictures immediately, which has now become the trigger of Gamblegate controversy.

Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar has asked people in entertainment industry not to indulge in gambling on Diwali and thus lead an exemplary life for people of India. He expressed shock at the development by sending SMS from Vaishno Devi, saying he expected maturity from no less than Amir Khan among the four.

But Amir has defended his decision and has told that he got into it thinking it was just a fun game. In a press release, marked to Academy Award jury as well, Amir has clarified that he didn’t expect Salman to insist on losing couple to leave behind everything they had lost.

Faking News tried to contact various Muslim ulema whether they would issue a fatwa against the four Khans for indulging in such acts, but none of the ulema were interested. We’d keep contacting them until we get a fatwa and a headline.

Meanwhile taking a note of the media headlines and public interest in the issue, Maharashtra government is thinking of legalizing gambling in public interest.

“Gambling has been going on for a long long time on Diwali day in India. I think time is ripe for us to legalize gambling. We’d grant a gambling partner the status of a business partner if two people have been gambling together for a considerable time.” Home Minister of Maharashtra R R Patil told Faking News in sign language as his mouth was full of sweets sent by Raj Thackeray.

The whole issue is expected to generate even more controversy as reactions from various quarters are still pouring in. But leaving them aside, Faking News uses this opportunity to wish a very happy Diwali to its readers.

Oh God !!!

I never thought that we would see such a downfall of Indian Film Fretenity.

I even heard that after this controversial incedent, Gauri Khan and Kareena didn't allowed both these wierd creatures let in the house. So both these have to pass the night at Karan Johar's residence. The insiders claim that the night was much beyond sharing Coffee mugs.. !!!
